    ABSTRACT: The risk of urinary tract stone disease is influenced by lifestyle, genetics and diet. Coffee, tea and drinking water source are one dietary factor that influences the urinary volume and urinary solute concentration. This study investigates the influence of coffee, tea and type of drinking water source to the risk of calcium kidney stone disease in Universitas Padjadjaran/Hasan Sadikin Hospital, Bandung West Java Indonesia. A hospital based case control study was conducted in Universitas Padjadjaran/Hasan Sadikin General Hospital from November 2016 to January 2017. 30 urinary tract calcium disease patients and 30 controlled patients were enrolled in this study. Patient characteristic and number of cup of coffee and tea intake as well as source of water were collected using checklist items. Two tailed independent t-tests Mann Whitney U, Chi square test and Fisher Exact Test were used for statistical analysis. The odds ratios for daily tea and daily tea and coffee intake are 0.33 and 0.2 and are statistically significant (P = 0.038 and P = 0.04). This result showed that tea and coffee have influence on the risk of calcium stone disease.
