I read that coffee makes something like 30% of people have to poop.....

I looked it up because I thought it was crazy that I would drink half a cup of coffee and immediately have to poop. I wondered if this was normal. Turns out it is but isn't lol. Apparently it kicks in those intestinal muscles in some people.

Does it work on you?

  • When I was a beginner coffee drinker it seemed like just the scent of coffee would make me head for the toile, but now I am a Pro Coffee Drinker and it takes more for it to bring on the poops

  • If I drink too much of it in a short time, like say three cups in an hour or two, it can giveme diarrhea.
