I have come to the decision that a year after having covid, my sense of taste hasn't returned to normal. It doesn't matter whether I buy good coffee or old stale junk, it all tastes the same. Vaguely bitter, not much aroma. If I put sugar or cream in, I do taste that. I was thinking our coffeemaker had somehow started to brew differently, like too hot? Too cold? etc. but really, it's not changed. Damn. I can't think of anything else that I can't taste. Chocolate is actually stronger tasting now. Probably a good thing; I eat less of it (not a crazy chocolate fiend anyway). I had a dark chocolate bite yesterday and it wasn't even pleasant. Just strong.

So that's weird.


Congratulations.   You accomplished the same loss of smell and taste experienced by tobacco smokers.  

Interested in sharpening your taste buds?   Quit salt.

I don't know if I have had the 'vid, but I used to have this thing where coffee often had a metallic taste to it - even decent espresso if not made right. Well, since the first half of 2020, that doesn't seem to be the case. So maybe I got lucky.

I spent a few nights hanging out with an indigenous street person one summer. It was an eye opening experience. There was a whole culture occupying the same space as the rest of us, like an alternate universe and I had just popped through the portal. I would have eventually got the crap beat out of me if I had stayed.

Let's grab a cup and I'll tell you more.
 
ok, but i've flipped stash rotation to a freekin' beautiful light roast

Coffee before manbird. Just the way of the world.

Edit:  Speaking of - currently enjoying the heck out of a local roast or arabica. And we have fresh yogurt with honey, mango and granola for a side dish.
