    Breville Barista - Double shot volume?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    So, if the established shot size for a 'standard' (i.e. 58mm) basket is 30ml (or, 60ml for a double), what shot size should I looking to be pulling from a the Baristas 53mm basket? Obviously will not hold as much coffee (max 18gm, maybe...?)

    Apologies if I'm getting any of the above info incorrect.

    Thanks in advance

    Use a set of scales to determine your dose in the basket and then use a ratio to determine the yield you should be getting in the cup. Woodhouse is suggesting a ratio of 1:2 - 1:3, I would suggest somewhere around that, even slightly less than 1:2 might be ok but go by taste.
