Why does coffee make you poop?

Some coffee drinkers have a fascination with why coffee makes them or their friends  go poop. I found this interesting and have experienced this myself. Why in the world does this happen and why can’t it get all the other poopy stuff out of my life? I went in search of an answer and found this video that explains it.

While the above video claims that caffeine really doesn’t play a role in coffee making you poop, this article on Insider from December of 2016 leans toward caffeine playing a role. I’m sure you can find evidence in both directions. Personally, soda and energy drinks do not have the same effect on me, so I side with the video.
