Has anyone ever tried developing with Caffenol? According to this recent article in Wired, it appears you can develop film in a mixture of coffee, vitamin C and washing soda.

Also, here's a Flickr pool dedicated to shots developed this way.

Haven't dealt with it, but it sounds like useful knowledge for my post-apocalyptic photography survival kit.

I took a swing at it once. I couldn't find granular vitamin C, so I used crushed vitamin C pills. Unfortunately, the inert part of the vitamin C pills is fairly basic and acted as a restrainer, so almost no image developed. I gave up there.

My primary film developer is homemade, though. It's called paRodinal and made out of lye, hypo and tylenol.
