Caffenol-C 1st attempt

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I've been wanting to try this developer for ages. I finally found a Norwegian that could set me on the right track to the ingredients for this developer. Anyway I got hold of the three basic componats and mixed then together using this receipe which I halved to make 500ml as it is a one shot dev.


The film I used was Expired (1997) Kodak T-Max @50asa Development was 20mins at 20℃

Inversions for the first 30 seconds and then 3 for every min.

Here is one of the shots from the reel.


Camera Leica MP

Summicron 90mm F2.0 APO ASPH


I can only say that it was great fun to try and will be using this developer more in future.

It is amazing what you can do with instant coffee, washing soda, vitamin c and a touch of potassium bromide.


I've been working with Caffenol variants since Christmas. There is a lot of Scandinavian activity around it over on APUG: Caffenol - norsk resept?

A list of recipes with image examples can be found here


Some samples of my work with Caffenol-C-L (I really like the semi stand development and the genarally one stop push it gives) can be found here APUG
