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.
