|Expired TMax-400 developed with a Diafine Clone|
But I always had the impression that films developed with Caffenol using only coffee and not too much soda had very small grain. So, I tried it with the above mentioned expired film. I was positively surprised. In fact, I got much less grain, as shown bellow:

The Caffenol I am using now has following recipe:
20 g/l soluble cheap coffee
10 g/l Potassium Carbonate
4 g/l Table Salt
Usage: 90 minutes at 20ºC, almost stand development. Agitation each 5 minutes or so.
My last developed film with this developer was a 120 TMax-400 but not expired, exposed with a Weltaflex 6x6.
