Rad Coffee Opening New Location In Covina This Weekend

Rad Coffee – the independent coffee company known for its mashup of skate culture and Instagramable over the top spooky-themed blended drinks – will celebrate the grand opening of their second Southern California location in Downtown Covina on Saturday, November 21st.

Located at 145 North Citrus Avenue in the heart of the Downtown Covina shopping district and close to Covina City Hall, this is the second Rad Coffee location for husband and wife team, Rusty and Jade Valore.

“We could have gone anywhere to open a second location, but Covina has always been on our minds and we finally found the right spot. It makes sense to bring Rad Coffee to life here,” says Jade. 

“Rad has become a destination spot for coffee in Southern California. We’re open until midnight and have always had a huge late night coffee crowd. We always say that we’re not your average coffee shop and we mean it.”

To commemorate their grand opening of their newest location, they will be giving the first 50 people in line complimentary custom tiki mugs, along with other RAD swag on November 21st. The party will be poppin’ all day long with horror cosplayers, photo ops, and entertainment. 

The full Rad menu will be available for purchase during the grand opening, including their famed blended drinks like Cookies N’ Scream, cookies blended with coffee – topped with house-made blue whip and topped with cereal; Dracula, red velvet blended with almond and white chocolate chips – topped with house made black whipped cream; and their signature Cold Brew Chocolate Milk, chocolate milk loaded with cold brew and organic chocolate sauce. Their expansive menu includes an array of over 50 concoctions ranging from espresso to matcha tea to their very own punk rock lemonade.

The coffee shop also proudly serves their own blend of small batch roasted coffee, created in-house by Rusty, who oversees the coffee roasting, as well as cold brew canning. Rad has been roasting and branding their own coffee beans since 2019, which gives them a larger footprint in the coffee industry.

If the 2,000 square foot Downtown Covina location is similar to the original Upland location, it will be a hot spot for the alternative crowds. With punk flyers lining the walls and murals showcasing work from indie illustrators, Rad Coffee creates a sense of community for those seeking something that’s not the average cup of Joe.

Rad Coffee Downtown Covina will be open daily from 6am – midnight.
