It all started in 1951, at the times when Master Mustafa, who was mentioned “uncle” by anyone who has stepped into this industry, desired to produce mills in Konak Chestnut Market Çerçioğlu Inn, at a 7 meter squared workshop by blending together the valuable energy of Aegean pearl İzmir and its passion for coffee.
In those years, due to lack of technology, Mustafa Uncle could determinedly produce each mill by hand. However, this incapacity did not limit him, on the contrary, turned into a light in his journey of making his vision real. As being the first person to introduce automatic printing press grinding machine to Turkey in 1958, he achieved a big jump in the industry. This big jump he made not only became a signature of himself but also the firm “Garanti” that he bequeaths to us. So, was this signature possible with only one success?
