After I drink coffee my pee smells like coffee without fail, if there is one constant in the universe it's that.

Coffee is a diuretic, and the metabolites within it become more pungent when your dehydrated, which makes your urine smell like coffee. Drink more water.

I don't think it's a hydration thing for me tbh since I drink a decent amount through out the day (3-4 L) and I usually would have drunk 1 L before even touching coffee, and I don't even drink that much coffee when I do drink, like maybe 1/4 of a cup, 1/2 tops and it still smells.

Your body may just be unusually sensitive to the metabolites. That's not unheard of, but rare.

Where questions like these are coming from... Again, no. I don't do anything like that.
