A test image of Swan Lake taken with b/w film and developed in caffenol. The little junk store camera doesn't really have a sharp lens, so I didn't get the resolution I was hoping for. But I'm a lot closer to the right time to develop film in caffenol at 12 minutes.

My Caffenol Formula (Caffenol McF)

16 fluid oz of warm water
6 teaspoons coffee
4 teaspoons washing soda
1 teaspoon ascorbic acid powder (vitamin C)

Mix coffee and ascorbic acid in 8 oz warm water.
Mix washing soda in 8 oz warm water.
Allow both to cool to room temperature (~70°F)

Mix both mixtures together and allow to sit for approximately 5 minutes to
allow for bubbles to dissipate. Pour into developing tank. Develop for
10 to 12 minutes.
My Sodium Thiosulfate penta Fixer

2l warm water
2/3 cup sodium thiosulfate penta

Disolve the sodium thiosulfate crystals in warm water and allow to cool to room temperature. Use straight for approximately 12 minutes.
