When smell and taste don't agree.

Maybe it's me, but there are certain food items that the smell can be incredible but the taste leaves little to be desired. Case in point, coffee. I know there are many, many coffee drinkers out there but I am not one of them. I can walk into a Starbucks or Gloria Jeans and just enjoy the smells wafting around, but the taste doesn't match the aromas.
Do any of you out there have that same problem with other foods or beverages?
