Why does drinking coffee make me hungry?

A few times a week, after breakfast, I will make myself a latte or a shot of espresso. Then I take a dump. (That's relevant, right?) Then after about 10 minutes I enter ravenous hunger stage where I want to devour anything and everything. So then I eat something but it's NEVER ENOUGH. It seems like no matter how much I eat, I can never feel satisfied. This continues for several hours after the coffee and it's really annoying.
Is this normal? I always hear how coffee is suppose to suppress your appetite, not put it into overdrive. And what can I do to solve it? (Yeah, give up coffee. But it's so delicious!) I am drinking a lot of water so I don't think I'm dehydrated. I'm 21 with no underlying health problems.
