Coffee Chrome for Creamy Cafe Tones

Brown tinted film recipe with cafe tones for X-Trans IV Fujifilm cameras

Here’s a Fuji camera film recipe for X-series that captures a coffee brown colour tone, to add a sophisticated warmth in a low saturation image. It works well in the golden hour, turning it into the cafe latte hour.

The colour shift is quite strong in this film recipe, shifting Classic Chrome with a colour temp of 8100k plus a +1, +5 adjustment. Shadows are deep with a +2 setting, and saturation is set to minimum to prevent the tone becoming too toffee like.
