French press, distorted taste!!!!!!

Just this evening I prepared a go of Verona, coarse ground coffee in my Bodum french press. I measured water and coffee as I usually did but the taste was horrible. It almost leaned towards that horrible instant coffee nonsense and a little bit watery.


I'm wondering whether I've been washing it incorrectly...or perhaps I ate something prior to the coffee that changed the taste. However, it never did this before...and I tried a different coffee yet the kind of musty taste remained.

Wonder what it is...
Perhaps I should leave soap or similar in the glass for a while to see...

Any response would be appreciated!
