Advance Custom Fields' textarea newline behaviour in Wordpress

Have you ever wondered why ACF's textarea field adds ```<br>```s in your frontend html instead of a paragraph tag?
An this happens in spite of the explicit newline settings on the fields

It turns out this is the default behaviour and it's a rather common pitfall for many ACF newcomers. 

Here's the deal:

##### Hit Enter twice for a paragraph ```p```.

##### Hit it just once for a regular single line break ```<br>```.
