Wired | Coffee Genes Hold the Jolt - projects looking to grow coffee plants which produce low-caffeine or decaf beans. Would be a good thing for people who actually know what good coffee tastes like; but have doctor's orders to stick to decaf. That assumes the beans still taste good :)

On a vaguely related note: it annoys me that people drink instant coffee, then claim to love "good coffee" and say they can't stand crap coffee. Drinking Nescafe and spurning International Roast does not make you a connoisseur. Then there are those who claim they need the caffeine hit from their one-teaspoon-of-instant coffee brew. I guess it's all about the comforts of daily ritual; since it can't be the actual caffeine :)
