Causes Of Coffee Ground Emesis
Blood vs. not: A classic description of coffee ground vomiting in medicine is suggestive of bleeding in the upper GI tract, more frequently from an active stomach or duodenal ulcer, however, I do see a lot of people who claim to have had this time of vomiting when in reality no ulcer is found.

What causes sudden vomiting? I vomit water, juice, milk, all kinds of food within 1-5 minutes of eating/drinking, sometimes even soon. What causes it?
