Does anyone else hate the taste of chickpea flour? IMO, it tastes beany and grassy and bitter.

Yep, I don't like it at all. Which is funny, because I love chickpeas and most chickpea products.

Chickpeas - aside from hummus - are inedible, and people who like them are bad.

It can definitely have that flavor. I like it for its textural and thickening properties but that flavor is why I always mixed it with some other kind of flour when I had to care about gluten free cooking. And it's pretty much only good for savory applications, it definitely overwhelms anything sweet.
