My Klean Kanteen tastes like I'm carrying spare change in my mouth. Fixes?

Last week I bought a 16oz Klean Kanteen Insulated (double-walled, hot/cold) container to replace a favorite Thermos (also stainless) that is no longer made.

I have no complaints with the leakproofness (a true screw-on sealed lid) or the thermal properties of the Klean Kanteen, but the taste is awful.
It's been thoroughly washed with soap and with baking soda. But still: metal tasting coffee. I have tossed half a dozen cups now.
It's otherwise perfect for what I need and I would like to be able to use it for years to come. Found a couple threads on plastic taste but noting on steel.
