I don't think any coffee tastes the same now. The old taste buds might be getting a bit frail, but there is hardly any flavour in any of them. The stronger ones are even more expensive but don't necessarily have a nicer flavour .
One thing we did years ago was boil the milk for a coffee, which seemed to make a different flavour. Now we just add cold milk because we're not supposed to drink too much milk. (or lazy)
Maybe a coffee percolator is the answer with some nice roast coffee ?
