Maybe I'm just odd then. I don't crave either, but I can eat either. 
Both are sort of in my, "Eh, they're okay, nothing special but they 
don't make my stomach turn" camp. So, I guess now you at least know one 
person. :)
Now, when I was younger, I hated all such things. Broccoli was my worst. 
My mom made us eat it, and it turned my stomach so much it caused me to 
throw up. Even the very smell of it made me sick. At some point, though, 
I got to where I can eat it without too much trouble, but if someone 
asked me what vegetable I wanted with a meal, I would never pick it. 
But, my wife and all my kids, amazingly, have always loved it. So I eat 
it for them. :)
Interestingly enough, I've yet to see Tom describe a coffee bean as 
having broccoli notes (I could have missed it if he did). But I can see 
it coming. :)

with an asparagus finish....
I find that many vegetable dislikes are due to never having had them  
properly prepared. Many people consume coffee, blissfully unaware of  
how it's supposed to be prepared, yet happily pouring the dregs from  
a BUNN pot that's been baking for 3 hours, dumping in cream and  
sugar, and still calling it "coffee".
ick.
I wouldn't like brussels, broccoli or other vegetables that have been  
cooked to death either, even if an attempt has been made  to mask the  
vileness with cream (sauce).

Amen.
Having tasted only the frozen things growing up, I never could understand
why people would voluntarily eat Brussels sprouts.
Then, at about age 35, I finally was fed some properly steamed fresh
sprouts.  It was hard to believe it was called by the same name.  Since then
I've been a fan.
