Reviews for Coffee Raisin Bread

My husband LIKES this bread!!! Actually, he seems to LOVE it, which is a miracle since he has always been a 1950's Wonder Bread type guy and views any whole wheat or dark-colored bread with suspicion, LOL - and the coffee makes this bread a deep color. I made the dough in my bread machine, then shaped it into a boule and let it rise in my banneton, Result: a very pretty round loaf. When I slice it for the toaster, I keep sniffing it because it smells so old-fashioned and comforting, somehow...and soooo luscious - but I may never get to actually EAT any because hubby is devouring it. He just asked if he could toast a few slices up for a night-time snack and said how GOOD it is! This one is definitely a KEEPER.... I'll be making Coffee Raisin Bread again and again! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
How would you make this recipe without the assistance of a bread machine?
Awesome bread recipe, my husband's favourite! Good with cheese.
