Most people do not count it because it's not actually pure. If that was the case you could count soda as water. Coffee and tea is often a laxative and I believe that is often why it is not counted.

I am trying to get in my 8 8 oz of water each day, so I am wondering.....does coffee count as drinking water? I don't mean the fancy, sugary, calorie packed coffee drinks. Just regular coffee. It doesn't have any calories anyway (if I add a small amount of cream/sugar, I log that seperately). And obviously coffee is made from water. So I was wondering if I had 8 oz of coffee could I count that in my water log?
