    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,

    I have recently bought a air fryer which has a roasting cage which turns. It appeares to be good for coffee roasting. I have attempted to roast coffee in it. It goes up to 250 degrees C and have tried varying temps, times and bean amounts. It appears the beans do not expand that much and still tastes a bit green. The colour seems to be okay but the fryer seems to be drying out the beans too much. Does anyone have any ideas for me to try...?

    Maybe its just not good enough to roast the beans...

    Thanks

    Maybe it's not hot enough and is baking and not roasting the beans? Do you get to first crack?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Yeah, I hear the first crack at about 7-8 mins or so. I think you might be right about the baking. Maybe I should try the hottest temperature for the first half of the roast.

    Thanks for the reply
