Sonia Nastase is country manager Nespresso Romania.
How do you like your coffee?
I am a big coffee enthusiast and I drink more than 4 cups of coffee a day. Selecting the Grand Cru I want, savoring its appearance, inhaling its aroma, delighting in its flavor… it’s my precious tasting ritual for the marvelous Nespresso coffee, which is one of the best coffees in the world.
What’s your favorite app?
Waze, because It gets me to places on time.
Name 3 things you always carry with you.
I carry lots of things but my favorites of the moment are: a travel-size bottle of Solaris Eau de Perfume, the 2017 Moleskine pocket dairy and my Nespresso Travel Mug, for those hectic mornings when I have to drink my coffee on the go.
What’s your favorite place in Bucharest?
I like to take a quiet stroll on the streets around Romanian Athenaeum, one of Bucharest’s majestic buildings and a symbol of Romanian culture. There are many beautiful old buildings and cozy terraces with shady gardens.
How did you spend your last holiday?
For me, Romania has a special, unparalleled charm in the world and whenever I can I hop on the car to explore new, remote places. I love especially Romanian monasteries: from the small and intimate wooden churches to the fortified churches enlisted in UNESCO heritage, hundreds of monasteries in our country are binding destinations to understand our roots and the Romanian spirituality.
What newspapers/magazines do you read?
I appreciate business publications like Forbes, Biz magazine or ZF because they are always packed with valuable content.
What color is your kitchen?
I’ve chosen a white paint, to reflect the kitchen’s natural light, and bright-colored accessories to create a positive and cheerful start of the day.
Name 3 favorite hobbies.
I love people and their stories and from here come all my hobbies: I read, I enjoy the films of the new wave of directors and I am really fond of traveling and sharing great experiences with family and friends.
The most important person in your life is…?
My daughter, Maria, my little bundle of joy!
If you wouldn’t have your actual career/job, what would you like to do (as a career/job)?
For sure I would have considered a career in medicine or psychology, because I’ve always had the desire to be with people, to hear their stories and help them in any way that I can.
What do you like best about Romania?
Its people. Romania is rich in hospitality, kindness and generosity and has a strong spiritual heritage.
