  1. The notion that drinking coffee will make you more dehydrated is an urban legend!
    Although caffeine is widely noted for its diuretic effects, drinking coffee will leave you more hydrated. Just not as much as if you drank plain water.
    So go ahead and drink that coffee without worry! You’re still hydrating yourself.

  2. Drink water. A lot. People usually forget to drink mineral water (whatever your preference is; tap water or bottled water) after they drink coffee. Although some researches has debunked the theory that coffee is dehydrating, but it doesn’t mean you can skip drinking mineral water.

  3. The caffeine in coffee is a mild diuretic (that is, it increases urination), but coffee (as well as tea) is still net hydrating, according to many studies (mostly in sports medicine journals). That means you take in more water than you pee out.
    But if you want to hydrate more per cup, either switch to decaf or drink more water between cups of coffee.
    There are drugs that will suppress urination, but unless you have a functional bladder problem, you do not want to fool with them. Like most drugs, they have adverse side effects and are expensive to boot.
