Other people have already mentioned the diuretic effects of coffee. Personally, I don't count anything as water except water (plain or bubbly).

no because it is more of a diuretic....

I don't count it because caffeine is a diuretic so it dehydrates you which kind of defeats the point of drinking water.

I am not a coffee drinker but had some today. Since it is made with water - does it "count" towards my water consumption for the day?
