if you dont like the acid notes in brewed coffee ask them to do an immersion brew instead like a french press, clever, syphon, or an aeropress (in order of descending acidity). get earthier beans from places like java or mocha. i also usually find unwashed coffee (eg most coffees in ethiopia and brazil) to be rich and fruity enough that the slight acidity they have is nice backdrop.
i highly doubt your beans were made to be undrinkably sour. not sure what method you're using but you should play around with the variables.
Despite you're fluency with pretentious coffee jargon that most of us have the good sense to eschew, your post is completely unhelpful and mildly annoying, and I didn't think it could get any worse until...
thinking about it even a few years ago i used to hate any acid notes in coffee and i thought i was superior and in good taste when i ordered starbucks coffee and told people i like my coffee "strong", but after learning more, having gone to quite a few cuppings, and drinking a lot of coffee i find myself gravitating towards nicely balanced acidity.
There you go, you really finished strong. Bravo.
