Is there anything coffee can’t do?

shelves of wine and coffee

Happy, happy weekend everyone – oh goodness, that week just whizzed by, didn’t it?

Just a quickie – did you know (I didn’t know this) that you can develop B&W film using just coffee and orange juice? No, neither did I! I always suspected that drinking instant coffee was akin to drinking dodgy chemicals and this just proves I was right (because I am always right, one day the world will realise this). There’s a flickr group here to prove that it really does work.

      I know! I wonder if it means you can drink regular developing solution as a beverage…?

    Yes. I did know that. They did it on mythbusters a while back. Been wanting to try it myself!
