siempre hay tiempo para nescafe - una encuesta

Agosto es Mes Nacional del Café
Encuesta La Hora del Cafecito 
Los Beneficios de un Cafecito
Encuesta: La Cafeína no es el Beneficio Mayor
Agosto es el Mes Nacional del Café y mientras la mayoría de la gente admite que 
su día no sería el mismo sin una taza de café, Nescafé quería llegar al corazón del 
romance entre los Latinos y el café. Una nueva encuesta de Wakefield Research 
para Nescafé encontró que la idea de una pausa durante el día para un cafecito 
tiene mucho más que ver con los beneficios psicológicos que con el estímulo de la 
cafeína. Tomar una taza de café le permite reflexionar y relajarse después de un 
día de mucho trabajo.

the short in English: New research shows that the idea of a break for coffee has psychological benefits more than the affect of coffee. I can personally attest to that. 

Los resultados: 
Primero yo, después yo y luego yo – No hable con el amante del café en su vida 
mientras este bebiendo de su café mañanero.  Sesenta y ocho (68) por ciento de 
los bebedores de café ven su taza de la mañana como "tiempo mio" en lugar de 
tiempo para ponerse al día con la familia y amigos. 

Tranquilidad Sabrosa – Los beneficios psicológicos son mayores que los beneficios 
físicos de tomar café. Relajación (65 por ciento), comodidad (53 por ciento), y 
liberar el estrés (40 por ciento) son las tres expectativas principales de la hora del 
café para los bebedores de café, superando el estímulo aportado por la cafeína 
(38 por ciento) que muchos asocian con el café. 

Un descanso durante el día – Tomar un descanso para fumar (13 por ciento)

vestirse formal (29 por ciento) y tomar un almuerzo de una hora (48 por ciento) ya 
no son las normas en un día de trabajo para los Latino.  Sin embargo, uno de los 
aspectos tradicionales sobrevive: un descanso para el café.  Más de la mitad (56 
por ciento) de los consumidores hispanos que trabajan regularmente toman un 
descanso para tomar café como parte de su jornada de trabajo. 
Un día sin café – No subestime la importancia de estos beneficios del cafecito.  
Más de 1 de cada 3 (35 por ciento) de bebedores de café piensan que un día sin 
café sería peor que no dormir lo suficiente.
