Share a Cafecito & Everyday Moments with Nescafé Clásico
Being a Latina, coffee has always been a constant in my life. In fact, it is a big part of our culture. In our family, we never go a day without our cafecito. We start our day with one, have one as an afternoon pick-me-up and dinner is almost always followed by a cup. The best part of setting up the table for coffee is the special everyday moments you get to share with your familia or amigos. With NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™, you can enjoy a delicious cup while enjoying good company.
In our home, every morning is a guarantee to wake up to the flavorful aroma of fresh coffee. Nescafé Clásico has always been our family’s go-to because of its bold taste. I know that until this day, I can head over to my parent’s house with a bote de Nescafé Clásico and just catch up and chismear because, well, there’s always something going on!
Grab a Jar
Recently, I’ve been on the road a lot for work and staying in a hotel for a couple weeks can jumble your routine a bit. Not when it comes to my café, though. My first stop after checking in was heading to Walmart to pick up the necessities. The most important one being my coffee. I headed straight for the Hispanic aisle and found my Nescafé Clásico right away. I grabbed a small bote and a big jar too to bring back for my parents. I went by the regular coffee aisle and found it there too, just in case you are looking for it. It’s always safe to look in both places!
Walmart is one of my favorite places to shop because not only can I get my café, I can pick up my groceries and basically anything else I need. ¡Tienen de todo! From toys, clothes, office supplies, and anything for the home, it’s a one-stop shop. It makes my life so much easier when I can pick everything up all at once instead of making multiple stops.
While I was away, I was able to enjoy my daily coffee with my husband and that part of my routine did not skip a beat. When I got home, no joke, my first stop was my parents’ house. I arrived bearing gifts of cafecito and postres.
Enjoy Everyday Moments
One thing you may or may not know about us Latinos is that we love our coffee. In fact, we start drinking it when we are young. We were no different, and my parents loved the ease of Nescafé Clásico compared to other coffee brands. A taza de café con leche was a favorite, and my oldest daughter Gabby loves it now. It’s warm or cold milk with a bit of what I think is the best tasting instant coffee: Nescafé Clásico. Add a little sugar and you’re golden. Seriously, it’s so good. Nowadays, depending on my mood, I love my coffee black or with light cream!
I love that familiar yet flavorful and rich taste to this day. It’s always in our pantry without fail because whenever I prepare a cup, it makes me feel at home. I know that it brings our familia together whenever we share it. Familia to us is so incredibly important, and the ability to make every moment a little less unfamiliar is priceless! Whenever company comes over, it’s there ready to bring us together.
So, if you ever come over, you know that I’ll ask you, “¿Te hago un cafecito?”
I brought over some pound cake and coffee. We sat down to just talk about life, the summer, my kids, and any gossip we’ve heard. One of the things that we discussed is Gabby starting high school and the fact that she is becoming quite the young lady. It gave me a chance to get a little advice because I’ve never parented a teen. I was quite the force to reckon with myself. A little rebelde, I admit. Another thing we Latinos love is chismeando. Whether it is about people we know but mostly of the celebrity kind of gossip. We just can’t help it!
Share the Laughter
Going to their Abuelitos’ house is always a treat for the girls. They’re always guaranteed tons of hugs and kisses. It’s a given that they’ll get candy and dollar bills folded and handed to them discreetly. Plus, there’s always a cup of café waiting. It’s nice to sit around the table after enjoying a meal and laugh, talk, and just be together. It’s these special moments that are forever ingrained in my being, and the one common factor is coffee.
It brings us together and it brings us comfort.
The best moments that we share are the times we get together ‘just because’. Not for any specific reason but because we just miss each other. We have a small family, so we don’t go a day without talking and we definitely don’t go too long without getting together. Even when we were back in nuestra patria in El Salvador, we shared moments with our extended family and friends. We are happy to continue to do that here, and a big part of that is because of café instantaneo Nescafé Clásico.

Whenever we get our teen’s full attention and headphone-free, we take advantage. She never turns down a cup of coffee, and it gives us a chance to connect and to see what is going on in her life. With high school starting for her, she’s already requested that I have Nescafé Clásico stocked. Before heading to school, during all-nighters and just for a pick-me-up, we’ve got her back!
For me, I am entering into my busy season, and you can bet that I will have my Nescafé mug filled and filled often. I usually head to my office and my Hubs always brings me a taza of delicious and bold coffee along with a piece of toast and a handwritten note. He is romantic like that, and it makes my day that much better.
Make Moments Happen
Head over to Walmart and make sure to pick up Nescafé Clásico jars. They are available in a 10.5 oz. jar and a 7 oz. jar so you have options. I always go for the 10.5 oz. myself since I love the bold taste and, to me, it’s the best instant coffee because it’s been such a constant in my life.
With a new school year on its way and the holidays, too, I can always count on my coffee. It’s there when I’m cuddling on the couch with a cup and a new book. You can bet it’s in my mug when I’m blasting the cumbias every Saturday. All while I am sipping on my café and the fam cleans and dances.
It makes every moment better.
