Caffeine as signaling device:

I've noticed a cool business use for coffee. If everyone drinks it during a meeting, then everyone can more trust the others to individually start on the planned work when the meeting draws to a close. Thus, more office coffee leads to shorter group pep sessions!

Decaf may be the ultimate signaling device: the social signal without the biological noise. Just don't let anyone see you reach for that orange handle.
