DEVELOPER: Labeauratoire’s Caffenol Concoction. CAMERA: Diana Mini Premier Cru (24×24) FILM: Kodak Aerecon II 3404 (expired 10/1998)

Yes, it’s true! You can develop B&W 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 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 perfect amount for your 600ml developing tank.

Each packet comes with complete instructions for developing your own film at home. (Or you can read directions on our website here.) Our Caffenol Concoction may not be the finest quality film developer you can buy. But many people are enjoying the quirky results from this natural, alternative process.

You can see hundreds of example photos from film developed in our Caffenol Concoction here:

YES!!! – You can have naturally sepia-tinted B&W Slides! Using our BLACKOUT Super Slow, Ultra High Contrast Transparency Film with our Caffenol Concoction, you’ll get a rich brown tone without any digital kung-fu.
