Caffeine content is, I believe, largely dependent on roast. The lighter the roast, the more caffeine the coffee will have. Maybe Turkish coffee uses a darker roast.

If you're using 20g for espresso and 20g for turkish it shouldn't be much difference at all in terms of caffeine. Don't use scoops, use a scale.

Turkish coffee typically uses darker roasts yes, but I doubt that would be a noticeable difference. It definitely feels stronger to me in a sense, but I also use substantially more coffee in a cezve than I would a single cup pour over or whatever.

Anyway, Turkish coffee is good and I miss it and youíve reminded me to start making it again. Cardamom is pretty standard; it can also be found with no spices, or pretty much any combination of the following: cinnamon, clove, coriander, ginger, allspice, anise, mace, nutmeg, vanilla, I think Iíve seen black pepper too. Some people make it with a pinch of salt. Iíve never seen it unsweetened though. Experiment!
