The summer wind is rolling in, and so is another issue of Loud Coffee Press! The weather in our part of the universe has been hot, steamy, with a dose of thunderstorms. No matter where you are in the world, we hope you'll take a break from the endless news cycle, outrage of the day, and whatever else adds stress to your life.
