You basically ended up with a conventional phenidone/vitamin C (PC) developer plus coffee. You might want to consider E-72 instead; it's fairly simple (five ingredients, including water) and it's lasted me through multi-hour sessions. I've also used DS-14 with good results. It's more complex, though.
