"Yes, it's true! You can develop film with a careful combination of natural, household substances. Our not-so-secret recipe contains a special blend of different bottom-shelf instant coffees, washing powder, vitamin c powder, and natural sea salt. Labeauratoire's new Caffenol Concoction has been refined over many years of experimentation and tested on dozens of different films with spectacularly unique results! Now we're making it available for you to try yourself!
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 our tried & tested formula, I've carefully measured and packaged 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 compaired to the Rolls Royce of other developers like Rodinal or Diafine. But many people are enjoying the quirky results from this alternative process.
Check out our Labeauratoire Flickr Group where you can see hundreds of examples of pictures from film developed using this exact formula.
PLEASE NOTE: A FILM DEVELOPING TANK & FILM FIXER ARE ALSO NEEDED TO DEVELOP FILM.
