    so ive herd that you can develop a roll of film using coffee, so i wanna try this out for myself. Ive looked at some of the stuff you need for it, and ive looked all over but i cant find any washing soda. can someone please give me a recipe, i dont know what to call it, that i can use. oh and i have a 120 roll of t-maxx 400. so if you could give me the times too thatd be great. i need this stuff bye tonight because im doing this for a project in school. if someone could give me all the info that would be awesome, thanks ={D

    actually.. now that i think about it.. it doesnt have to be coffee developer, it can be anything out of the ordinary. just cant be developed using normal developer. so any recipes?. thanks again

    I don't know but it seems the washing soda is more important than the coffee mixture.
