Coffee tastes weird: confirmation bias, or something else?

I woke up this morning and made coffee for DH and myself; it tasted weird, and I told DH he should make a new pot for himself. When he did, he said THAT tasted weird also. This is coffee that we drink every day from Fairway, and make by French press.
When I got to work, I bought a coffee from a local vendor that I thought was going to be French vanilla, but they either didn’t hear me or my taste buds are really screwed, because it tastes like regular coffee. I called DH at work, who made a pot of our Fairway coffee (separate bag that he keeps at work) and he says THAT tastes weird also.
Neither one of us feel sick at all, and we’re both hypochondriacs. Does anyone have a clue what might be going on? Could my taste buds be off for some reason and his be off because of confirmation bias?
