Develop Film with Coffee and Vitamin C?

Yes you can! Photojojo has a whole tutorial on it, and there’s even a Flickr group devoted to caffeine-based home-brew developer recipes.

Turns out it’s a little more complicated than just plucking an exposed roll of Tri-X out of your Brownie and dunking it in your morning cup of Joe — you probably won’t do this if you aren’t already developing your own film. And apparently the concoction smells really, really bad. But the extra-grainy, high-contrast results are subtly atmospheric, and let’s face it, it sounds like fun. I’m definitely going to give it a try!
