I don't know if it's just me or not, but I notice a big taste change in my coffee as it cools slightly. I try sipping when its freshly poured into my cup or slightly there after when its hot, and I feel like I just don't taste much...just heat (if that makes sense). Give it 5-10 mins to cool off and I feel like it comes alive with flavor. Does this sound right?

It is not just you. It is a common phenomena with any kind of taste sensation really, some more than others though. As things change in temperature there is a parabolic curve of flavor perception. Hot things tend to shock the palate and excessively cold things hide flavour components. It's the same logic why cheap beer producers tout the "extreme-cold-rocky-mountai n-blue-bullet-drinkability" as an upsell.
