When we first heard about the alternative photographic process Caffenol, we were charmed by it's simplicity. Caffenol is a film developing method using instant coffee, washing soda and vitamin C used in an aqueous solution. 'There is a lot to explore to simplify your life' and we are so thankful exploring these simple things ...
Caffenol as a method of developing photographic film was first discovered by The Technical Photographic Chemistry Class at RIT in 1995 led by Dr. Scott Williams. They tested mixtures of tea and coffee combined with agents to balance the pH. They successfully made printable images for exposed film and were amazed by the results.
Caffenol is very easy to use and as it is with cooking your favourite receipe, there are many formulas for your homemade brew. Besides the products you have to find in your cupboard, you will need some neccessary equipment as a measuring cup, spoons and scissors. At our upcoming get together we will have the unique opportunity to discover the possibilities ourselves.
