    Funny and gross subject, but there must be someone else who wonders about this too. I'm not joking, I actually want to know....

    Is it the caffeine? Or something else?

    I just might be the amount of caffeine.

    Caffeine can make some people have very very loose stools............... ::)

    If you google "What in coffee makes you poop" you get LOTS of funny things!!!

    Most say its the caffine, but then several people mention they drink decaf.

    One guys said it was the amount of mouse turds in the coffee beans, LMAO.

    Are you referring to your morning cup of coffee that helps you get ready for your morning :badassbuddy_com-crap:

    I do wonder that, especially in the Winter when I have 3 layers of clothes plus the Carharts on, and the coffee starts working while I'm out 300' from the house.

    Anyhow, I tried the google, and that was entertaining, fo sho! The one answer that makes sense is it's not the caffeine, it's the warmth. Giving babies that are stopped up something warm has the same response. It can't be the caffeine, because soda doesn't do this.

    Syn, I ditto the warmth bit.

    Hot cocoa can do the same thing.

    Even as little as an 8oz. Beer for me, the next morning.
    I think my body is immuned to any good coffee type to help with the process. Although, the coffee singles (2 "tea" bags used for my 1 cup ea day) help in the morning, since I drink beer seldomly.

    Warmth? I sure wouldn't have thought of that - but anything is possible. I'm still thinking it's the caffeine since it jump-starts your body. I don't drink pop so I can't test the caffeine theory further.
