Orange Juice & Espresso Recipe

In the last 3 years alone, there have been many different coffee variations and concoctions that have been created. Some have been really good, some have been strange, and we guarantee that there will be many more to come in the future. Currently, we have TikTok to thank for the coffee trends that keep appearing, and this time it’s the orange juice and espresso recipe.

When you first hear that, you will probably think it’s crazy to mix those two common breakfast drinks together. But when we tried it for ourselves, it’s safe to say that it actually tastes quite good. We are unsure why something so odd makes something so tasty, but who are we to question it?

Usually, we would not account for TikTok when it comes to coffee, and neither would most coffee aficionados. It’s safe to say that there have been some other, let’s say, interesting recipes that have arisen from TikTok including Proffee and the Dalgona. However, it’s one of those things where you can’t knock it till you’ve tried it.

As with every recipe you find, there will be different variations of the orange juice and espresso recipe, where some will include salt, vanilla, and many other strange additions.

Yes, coffee and orange juice do go together. However, it may be an acquired taste. The sweet and tangy orange juice combined with the bitter and smooth espresso, may not be to everyone’s liking. But for some, it will be your new favorite coffee drink, and an easier way to have your breakfast drinks!



Is Orange Juice with Espresso Good?

Orange juice with espresso can be good depending on who you ask. It can have a very strange taste to begin with and would require a certain palette to enjoy the combined flavors and textures. You can try to add extra ingredients to balance the flavor such as vanilla extract, but this should be done in very small amounts.

This is where orange juice and espresso originated from.
