Coffee helps teams work together: Caffeine makes people more positive by making them more alert -- ScienceDaily June 2018
Paper: "Coffee with co-workers: role of caffeine on evaluations of the self and others in group settings" http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0269881118760665?journalCode=jopa

Abstract

This research explores the effect of consuming a moderate amount of commercially available caffeinated coffee on an individual’s self-evaluated participation in a group activity and subsequent evaluations of the experience. Across two studies, results show that consuming a moderate amount of caffeinated coffee prior to indulging in a group activity enhances an individual’s task-relevant participation in the group activity. In addition, subjective evaluations of the participation of other group members and oneself are also positively influenced. Finally, the positive impact of consuming a moderate amount of caffeinated coffee on the evaluation of participation of other group members and oneself is moderated by a sense of an increased level of alertness.
