Not willing to pay much for roasting some time ago.
Then saw someone using oven to roast at home, and saw someone else used an air fryer to do the same.
As it is not expensive at all, bought one and try to play with it.

The original thermostat was not that sensitive
and the maximum temperature cannot stably sustain at 200C
So I removed the original thermostat and replaced it with a PID control.

Roasting journey started but to tell the truth
It can hardly compare with professional roaster.
So I have given up using it now.

Your post read like this:

1:23 am - Got roaster
1:24 am - Modified roaster
1:26 am - Completed first roast
1:26 am - Gave up

Based on that, I'd say your roasts are too fast and you haven't tried long enough :)

dunno.. the roast doesn't look too bad.. did you let it rest long enough to give it a proper evaluation? Takes 1-2 weeks to develop, depending on weather...

Well, the fact is that I started using the air fryer for roasting since March 2013. In 3-4 months time, I have tried over 20 times with different beans, different level of roasting and using espresso, hand drip and aeropress.
The results were not bad if you want some freshly roasted coffee at home but if you want taste more from the beans, a professional roasting machine will have much better result.
