Labeauratoire's Caffenol Concoction is a film developer that utilizes a combination of natural, household substances. Refined over many years of experimentation and tested on dozens of different films with spectacularly unique results! Our not-so-secret recipe contains a special blend of different bottom-shelf instant coffees, washing powder, vitamin C powder, and natural sea salt.
The concept of "caffenol" is not new. It's been around for quite a while now and there are many different recipes out there. You might even want to try making your own. But if you'd like to use a tried & tested formula, Labeauratoire offers the two commonly used sizes for developing tanks: 600ml or 1000ml.
Each packet comes with complete instructions for developing your own film at home. Our Caffenol Concoction may not be the finest quality film developer you can buy. Consider it the Volkswagen Bus when compared to the Rolls Royce of other developers like Rodinal or Diafine. But many people are enjoying the quirky results from this alternative process.
The 600ml packet mixed with water will make enough to fill most normal 35mm 2-reel tanks. Develops at least 4 rolls of 35mm film or 2 rolls of 120 film (re-used once).
The 1000ml packet mixed with water will make enough to fill most normal 35mm 4-reel tanks. Develops at least 8 rolls of 35mm film or 4 rolls of 120 film (re-used once).
