Bitter Hummus

So, I want to know if anyone else experiences this problem. Every time I attempt to make hummus, it ends up being wildly bitter. Like, mouth-puckering bitter.

I did quite a bit of research, and some say that when good-quality extra virgin olive oil is whipped in a food processor for too long, it turns bitter because of the heat of the blades. So then I tried regular olive oil, and the same thing happened.
When I taste my tahini plain, it is a bit bitter, but I have used it in other recipes just fine.

So what is happening? Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what did you do to fix it?
