Caffeine was developed as a defense against insects feeding on the plants (as were most of those other compounds that have an effect on us) and is toxic to some invertebrates. The caffeine is probable removed from the coffee grounds for the most part as caffeine is pretty soluable and dissolves early on in the coffee making process.
