I have been using the Porlex with the Flair (India Elephant Hills AA Grade & Sarah's Espresso from Beanbay), tried the finest as well as 2 clicks with fresh boiled water just off the stove or a electric kettle. Not sure which step I did wrong, although I am getting a ok crema but the coffee turns out to be super sour.

Have you tried it with the porlex?
I also tried to roast my own bean (Rwanda Nyungwe A from bean bay) with a popcorn popper, with a super dark roast, the shot from it is less sour but still sour than what I get from nanopresso or Moka pot
