Let's see, there is a guy south of me who took early retirement to get out of corporate insanity and started roasting coffee. He and his wife roast 8,000 lbs a month. I'd call them 'micro'.
So maybe the answer is for you to coin a new phrase such as 'nano roaster', 'sub-atomic roaster' or 'quark roaster'. I'd say it is up to you to come up with the name and boldly lead us to where we haven't gone before.
Happy roasting, whatever size category you fall into. I'm probably at the sub-atomic level right now.Wrinkles only go where the smiles have been -- Jimmy Buffett (via Mark Twain)

Ok, now we have to come up a term that is smaller than "micro"!

In "Roast" magazines roasters of the year awards the "micro roaster" category is for less than 100,000 lbs/year
But generally I think it's used like a politicians definition of "small business"
