Single dose in specialty coffee

Please I will like to know how to make a half shot/single espresso in specialty coffee using 18gms basket… and please specify how I can do that and still maintain good quality. Thanks

You can always just split the shot if you’re making 2 single shot drinks. If you’re not then you could just drink the other half or give it away. By splitting I mean if you have a porta-filter that has 2 spouts that splits the shot into two different shot glasses.

Splitting them is probably the easiest way to go… trying to do a half won’t work perfectly in most espresso machines.
