Or am I just crazy? EVERY time I make decaf, it smells normal but tastes kinda 'off'. Anyone else feel this way? And let me apologize in advance if people are offended by my question.:P

No, you're not crazy. The process by which they extract caffeine from the coffee beans can take the flavor right along with it. They try to put the flavor back after the decaf process but I don't think they can fully restore the richness. I must have my coffee intact with all it's lovely caffeine -- I just limit myself to 2 cups/day. :P

Why would anyone sbe offended by this question? Silly!

I used decaff, coffee at Borders, for about 2 years. Didn't detect a whole lotta diference really. What made the greatest diffference in taste and still does is the milk type used. I cannot stand coffee with anything less than full fat milk, it just makes it too bitter.

After 2 years I realized that the switch to decaff hadn't made any change to my mood swings and anxiety and switched right back to the caffeinated variety. I figured: what the heck!!

I usually don't like decaf (I say what's the point?). But, when I was pregnant, I enjoyed Chock Full of Nuts (I think I spelled it right) brand. The decaf is really good. I don't know if your store carries it, but you might want to check it out.

Oh, I think if I asked for decaf the Germans would give me a blank stare. They don't really do that in Europe. :) The only place I can get it is at the American Commissary and it always tastes strange.

OMG! The coffee is so good in Europe (puts Starbucks to shame): why would you bother with decaff?

Agreed. The coffee I had in Italy was to die for. One of the first things I learned how to order was a caffe doppio -- a little cup of heaven...ahhhh:)
