I prefer one of 2 other ways....either dry bean in secondary or add coffee at bottling/kegging.

Someone went thru a lot of trouble figuring how to best extract the flavor of the bean.  IMHO the best is to rely on that technical knowledge so I use a coffee pot to extract the coffee and add the coffee to my beer when I use coffee.

Lots of brewers have success adding coffee at a variety of points in the brewing process. 

It is really your choice.

I prefer to cold steep a very thick slurry of coffee overnight to extract the good stuff without the bad.

+1.  I have always followed Randy Mosher's "Cold Exraction" advice in Radical Brewing with very good results!
