Coffee Proven To Improve Group Performance, Collaboration


A recent study has found that serving coffee at a meeting stimulates the discussion and keeps it focused, promotes involvement, and makes group members feel positively about their own participation as well as the contribution of others.

While many decades of research has explored the effects of coffee on individuals, this study is the first to focus on the influence that coffee has on group performance.

Study co-author Rao Unnava is the dean of the Graduate School of Management at the University of California, Davis.

“If you look at where coffee’s being consumed, a significant amount happens in group settings,” said Unnava.

 The study involved two experiments, each of which was focused on around 70 undergraduate students.
