I wonder if the difference is the plastic itself.  The suggestion to 
try another type of plastic would help see if that's the case.
A yogurt container should only exude incredibly small amounts of 
plasticisers or other chemicals but since coffee is such a complex 
thing it wouldn't take much to affect the taste.

Personally, I use mason jars.
