Hi Meli,

Urine does excrete fluid and many metabolites, which are waste products of metabolism. Some foods, drinks and medications can have an effect on the smell of urine, and this is usually harmless.

Coffee is one of the ingredients that can cause the smell of coffee in urine. In addition, there are also many other foods that can cause odor and even change the color of urine, such as petai, jengkol, red dragon fruit, beets, and so on. Usually, if there is a lack of fluids, the urine will be more concentrated so that the smell of these ingredients is getting stronger.

Coffee contains caffeine which can have a diuretic effect (stimulates urination) so that it can cause a lack of fluids and the urine will be more concentrated. Coffee is generally safe for consumption, but to avoid the negative effects of caffeine, you should limit your consumption to no more than 400 mg of caffeine or the equivalent of 4 cups of coffee. Make sure to drink more water when drinking coffee.

I hope it's useful,

dr. Mega
