The Cost of Caffenol C

As I am putting my notes together to produce “The Photographers Coffee Break”, I decided to do a quick calculation on the actual cost for Caffenol C Developer as sourced from my local grocery store… $1.00 per roll if you use distilled water… .75¢ per roll if you use tap water… not bad at all!

I am leaving for New Orleans later today so for the next few days posts here on FR will come from my ipod Touch.

  1. Hello Stephen,

    As everything has been said about your thoughts/blog/photographs…I am highly awe, WOW !I just discovered your site and magical Caffenol, that is one of the best joys in my day, sweet : )

    May you help me about developping 35mm in a JOBO 1520 (?)
    It is written on tank as follows:
    Rotation: 240 ml
    Inversion: 485 ml

    What shoud I use for one 35mm film ? Next, I think I understood about caffenol, I should divise each element by 4 (?) But, the ‘standard’ dev time wil remain the same ?

    Admit, preparing of 250ml Caffenol developper CCM. That would give me:
    13,5g washing soda/ml
    4g Vitamin C/ml
    10f of instant coffee/ml
    ..and for CCL 0,25g Potassium Bromide/ml

    I hope my explanation seems good, my english too : ) looking forward your book which sounds really, really relevant, for sure!!!

    Thank you Stephen, faithfully!!!
