Also if your coffee tasted tangy out of a French press, probably your grind is too coarse or you’re not steeping long enough. Usually it takes me 2-3 brews with a particular coffee to get the grind and time correct. Just enough time to run out of coffee and start the process over again with a new one.

Basically- bitter means over-extracted and you need a bigger grind, less time, and/or cooler water. Sour means under-extracted and it’s the opposite problem. You need a finer grind, more time, and/or hotter water. That all assumes your coffee/water ratio is in a decent range. It’s best to hold most of these constant and just mess with one thing at a time.
