abandoned all pretence
A woman was talking and a man was listening to her.
When she had been speaking for two minutes, Mr X abandoned all pretence of drinking his coffee, leaned his elbows on the desk and put his chin on his fists. And for a moment after she had ceased speaking, he
remained in that position, regarding her steadily.
Does it mean he stopped pretending that he was drinking coffee?

Yes, you are right.
abandon all/any pretence = stop trying to pretend something
