Dr Oz: What Is Turkish Coffee?
Dr. Oz went over the types of coffee you normally get:
- Coarse grind – Mostly likely what you are served at a restaurant.
- Medium grind – Probably how you prepare your coffee at home, either in a brewer or a French press.
- Fine grind – Kilham explained fine ground coffee, or espresso grind, as having a texture like baby powder. He says a fine grind is what is used for Greek coffee, which is also called Turkish coffee.

This will amount to about 100 mg of caffeine.
