Research suggests that coffee consumption does not have adverse effects on the functioning of the GI tract in healthy individuals.  Some individuals who suffer GI problems may choose to avoid certain foods or drinks to manage their symptoms, and this may include coffee.

In relation to other intestinal organs, evidence suggests that coffee consumption may be associated with reduced risk of gallbladder disease and liver disease, including liver cancer. Coffee is not associated with an increased risk of pancreatic or colorectal cancer.
