I have had similar experience. Cutting out everything sweet for a few months and then reintroducing a few things like dark chocolate and red wine and some fruits. The biggest tell for me was my birthday this past summer. I used to get a mocha cake from a local bakery that was far less sweet than other cakes from cheaper bakeries. It's made with real ingredients and real buttercream icing etc. So instead of buying a whole cake I even bought just one slice. I was so looking forward to it! Turns out I could only eat half of one piece! It was waaaaay toooo sweet. Now I couldn't care less if I ever ate it again.
And yes coffee is chocolately, especially if it's good quality and made right.
