Default Interpolation cell -> face

Hello everybody,

interpolation of cell values (e.g. volScalarField) to face values (e.g. surfaceScalarField) for the complete domain is quite straightforward - see rhoCentralFoam:

surfaceScalarField rho_pos
    fvc::interpolate(rho, pos, "reconstruct(rho)")
However, I just need a single interpolated face value of a specific faceI. Is there a way to perform such an interpolation for a single face? This way I can skip the computational expensive cell->face interpolation of the whole domain.

Kind regards
