Coffee contains alot of caffeine which causes your intestines to become stimulated and increases the movement of your intestines which creates a bowel movement. It also depends on the type of coffee brand you drink.

Coffee has caffeine and this is a mild diuretic. This can give you gas or produce an even stronger response. Usually the unpleasant feeling will settle quickly, but they can last for a while.

All I can say is that sometimes coffee acts like a laxative on some people. It is a natural laxative that seems to work every time. So forget the Exlax and drink coffee it is easier.
