It’s been two years…two very long years…of lockdown, social distancing and disconnection from family and friends. Most of us have been altered in one way or another by Covid-19 protocols and lockdowns. Whether we have become more family-orientated, more anxious, or more of a homebody, we have all been affected.
A survey conducted by Specsavers assessed what people have missed most during the lockdown period. Turns out, it’s the little things that matter the most. Of the respondents, 83% noted the freedoms of day-to-day life were most missed. However, the overriding theme was that people are longing for those everyday connections.
Connecting with people outside of our immediate family, extended family, and work colleagues after two years of disconnection can be somewhat daunting. Many may feel a sense of anxiety when it comes to being around people again, even with Covid protocols in place.
However, Society Cappuccinos is encouraging South Africans to take the plunge and initiate connecting with friends and loved ones again, whether in person, or over a phone call or video call, based on the fundamental belief that we really are better together. To bring people together, Society has launched a new Mochaccino which unites two things people love – coffee and chocolate.
“Humans are actually hardwired to socialise, it’s important for our mental and emotional health,” explained Society’s COO, Natalie White. “But it’s understandable that many are still a bit cautious about socialising in public spaces. Society Cappuccinos is about creating the coffee shop experience wherever you are – so for those who are anxious to go out, they can enjoy a coffee shop experience with a friend or loved one at home.”
As Jane Stoneham, Director of Sensory Trust explained in a British-based Metro news article: ‘We know that connecting with people and places on a sensory level provides deeper, longer lasting experiences.’ The sound of friends’ laughter, the smell of a Mochaccino…these create much more meaningful social connections.
The new Society Mochaccino brings together two things that many will agree are truly better together – coffee and chocolate. Society Mochaccinos are made from the finest 100% Arabica coffee beans paired with indulgent Cocoa - bringing together premium coffee and chocolate for an indulgent taste experience.
“Society Cappuccinos is a brand that promotes connection, conversations, and coming together - because we know as humans we can’t live without connection” added White. “That’s why we’re bringing people together over our newest launch, Society Mochaccino. This combines two things most people can’t live without – coffee and chocolate!”
