Are mycotoxins from coffee the cause of the sudden urge to use the restroom?

I've always drank cheap $15 per 3 lb bag of Colombian coffee and noticed I always had the sudden urge to use the restroom even upon smelling it. Well I recently made a switch to more gourmet types of coffee and noticed specifically that no matter how much of the Guatemalan $19 per 12 oz bag of coffee I drank, I never experienced the same problem.

Does anyone else have the same experience as me?

There's an old story about Liberace playing to a full house of senior citizens in Florida. They had installed a waterfall behind him on the stage for his performance. About 15 minutes into playing, more than half the audience got up to go to the restroom. When he realized what was happening, he apologized and had the waterfall shut off. They were able to stay in their seats after that.

Espresso hasn't given me any problems, even from Starbucks.

Coffee (caffeine) stimulates cortisol, and cortisol stimulates the urge to use the restroom.

Mycotoxins are probably not the reason: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7451391

How about espresso?

For me, it's all about the strength of the brew.
