Ashton Kutcher puts a splash of orange juice in his morning coffee: gross?

I’m not much of a coffee drinker. I like some of the specialty, sugary coffee drinks which barely taste like coffee, but for the most part, I maintain my caffeine addiction through diet soda. To me, coffee on its own is not great, but that’s just my taste and I acknowledge that a lot of people love the taste of coffee. The things which make coffee more palatable: chocolate, alcohol, dairy creamer, sugar. The things which make coffee even more disgusting: citrus anything. But not according to Ashton Kutcher! Apparently, Ashton doesn’t like to put creamer in his coffee. He spikes his coffee with… orange juice. *hork*

Ashton Kutcher has quite the unconventional coffee order. During an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the Your Place or Mine star opened up about how he enhances his morning cup of coffee with a splash of orange juice.

Host Kelly Clarkson was skeptical of his “obsession,” telling him “I think you might be alone here” before he went on to defend his flavor preference.

“Hold on. I’m not big on creamers. I don’t like creamers. I usually drink black coffee. That is my go- to,” he explained. “But, occasionally I like light roast black coffee. And one of the things about light roast black coffee is that it has citrus notes in it.”

He then described how much orange juice he actually mixes in his cup.

“It’s the acidity that sort of gives it a brightness when you’re drinking coffee,” he explained. “If I ever have a medium roast coffee and I’m like ‘Ah, I really would prefer this be a little more light roast,’ I take just a splash — not very much — of orange juice and it brightens up the coffee, and gives it a little bit of sweetness.”

Kutcher made sure to add the disclaimer not to “go overboard” because if he adds too much it “gets all sorts of not fun.” Though she was still skeptical, Clarkson came around to giving the concoction a taste.

“It sounds gross, but I’m going to try it,” she said.

Maybe… maybe Ashton just doesn’t have conventional/normal taste buds or a sense of smell? Hear me out – this is a man who rarely bathes, rarely uses soap, who wanders around with a dirty ass, smelling like feet. And now we learn that he can spike his black coffee with orange juice, a smell combination which makes me want to hurl. I bet you anything Ashton’s sense of smell is f–ked up, and probably his taste buds too.

    Don’t want to defend him (and I think juice in coffee sounds disgusting) but I was so sad when Wegmans stopped carrying their “Seville*” flavored coffee years ago. Decades? I’m sure it was in the late nineties It had orange rind in it and was so delicious and smelled wonderful! It was the favorite of 2 coworkers and our supervisor too. * or was it Valencia?

    • Molly says:

      I wish Starbucks would bring back their valencia syrup so that the world could once again enjoy Zoolander frappuccinos.

      And I think a twist of orange peel in coffee sounds much more appetizing than straight up juice.

      • JanetDR says:

        I’m going to save my next organic orange peel and see how it goes!

      • Christine says:

        I always have lemon with my tea, so maybe orange juice in coffee is the same? I don’t know, I’m going to have to try it, even though I like my coffee black.

    • Duch says:

      I remember going to a fancy French restaurant in New Orleans and the waiter wheeled over a special cart, and poured the coffee over a peeled orange, or maybe it was over the rind. Big show involved doing it. It was delicious !

    • DouchesOfCambridge says:

      I thought it was a Thai or Philippine recipe to have orange in a coffee?

  2. girl_ninja says:

    Everything I find out about him is icky. He also is so unattractive to me and is aging like milk.

  3. Becks1 says:

    So I have never done that, but I can kind of see what he’s saying. Sometimes when cooking, I add a splash of lemon juice to brighten up a sauce or soup or something, and with some meals it seems like a really weird addition but it helps to cut the acidity. So I guess the same thing could work with some coffee roasts? It sounds like he’s just adding a splash, not a cup of OJ or something.

  4. JW says:

    Ashton Kutcher defends rapists. I guess after that I’m kinda like, who cares what else he does?

  5. Abby says:

    Personally I don’t like any fruity taste in my coffee. I think this sounds gross. Better if he doesn’t have any cream at all, but still not something I would drink.

    But I’m not going to hate on it because everyone has their preferences.

    • Jenna says:

      I know this is a gossip site *and we are all here to judge* – but in this case – if you are a coffee lover – you need to try an orange rind peel in your expresso. It’s beyond delicious and a perfect pairing.

  6. lamejudi says:

    Does he do this before or after he doesn’t take a shower?

  7. BW says:

    Has no one here had a drink with Kahlua (coffee flavor) and Grand Marnier (orange flavor)? They’re delicious. And adding a splash of lemon to anything brightens the flavor, so I could see adding a splash of orange, which is sweeter, to coffee.

    Still not a fan of him, though.

  8. Alice says:

    I was a huge fan of orange mocha chip frappuccinos back in the day (before Zoolander made it into a meme, Starbucks did have a similar actual drink, and it – along with the midnight mint mocha – are their 2 retired drinks that I still to this day long for them to bring back), and I order a “Cafe Borgia” quite often from a local cafe near me, which is essentially a mocha with orange syrup. While I think the chocolate is an essential part of the flavor combination for me, I can see the appeal. That said, I don’t give a hoot about Ashton Kutcher.

  9. michyk says:

    i guess i’m surprised by how surprised people are about this? i hate coffee and i hate orange juice, so this all sounds so gross to me, but i feel like i’ve been seeing people debating this combo in social media for ages now. it’s called a spritzed americano i think? something like that?

  10. HeyKay says:

    Talk about a softball conversation.
    AK gives an interview describing his coffee preferences.
    Who cares?

  11. Angie H says:

    Actually a squeeze of lemon in espresso is Euro. He’s from Iowa, so it’s OJ in crappy American coffee. Probably Folgers. PS my entire fam is from Iowa so I kid, but I do eat a lot of white bread when I visit. And red meat. And potatoes. And dessert.

    • BeanieBean says:

      This made me laugh! My dad is from Iowa & we’ve visited a time or two. This rings so true! Just wanted to add, I once accidentally poured OJ onto my cereal (it was too early for me) & thought I’d try it because I hate to throw out food. It was disgusting as you can imagine.

    • Kitten says:

      LOL I know he’s probably an exception but my husb is from Iowa and he has pretty exquisite taste in coffee, although it’s mostly just high-quality cold brew. His family never understands why people in New England are so obsessed with iced coffee, even in the winter.

      We haven’t been back to IA since COVID so it’s gonna be an interesting visit with the fam this summer lol.

  12. Smee says:

    You drink it right after you brush your teeth 😀

  13. smegmoria says:

    Acid on acid eh? Stimpy, get him some acid.

  14. Sass says:

    I was thinking the same thing, this guy’s olfactory senses are already screwy so I guess it makes sense he’s also a nontaster.

    Coffee is already acidic, adding orange juice to it seems…bad.

    However, my great grandma drank Arnold Palmers with OJ instead of lemonade and I gotta say, they’re pretty good like that. But that’s a very different drink.

  15. Torttu says:

    Also, that movie with Reese is terrible.

  16. Normades says:

    I have stomach cramps and IBS just thinking about it.

  17. Alexa says:

    I have a friend, who is Portuguese. She told me it’s normal for her to put lemon juice in her coffee. Especially in her iced coffee. I am not a coffee drinker, but I tried it and thought it wasn’t half bad *shrug*

  18. Mrs. Smith says:

    I’ve been watching the reality show Bling Empire on Netflix and one of the cast orders a coffee with orange juice. The waiter is confused and she explains how to make it: shake coffee and OJ together then pour over ice. Hork indeed.

  19. Julia K says:

    He cheated on Demi and betrayed the trust his 3 stepdaughters placed on him. Once a cheat always a cheat. Past performance is a good indicator of future performance.

  20. Pupuplatterette says:

    Gross in every regard right down to the coffee and oj

  21. Abby says:

    I love having orange juice with my coffee in the morning, this isn’t THAT unusual, come on.

  22. John W says:

    I don’t know why it’s gross with all the weird food combos out there.

  23. Marie says:

    To each their own but what really bothers me about this is the blatantly false information he so confidently gives about coffee. A light roast doesn’t have “citrus notes” in it. The varietal of beans has citrus notes in it. For instance Kenyan beans are known for their citrus notes. Light roasts are better (imo) because they allow you to taste the bean, not the roast. This is why Starbucks coffee is frowned upon in the coffee world because their roast is so dark that all you can taste is the bitterness of the roast and not the nuance of the bean. A lighter roast will give you less bitterness so you can taste the bean. That being said, yes, some espresso lovers will squeeze lemon into it. I don’t get it personally. My fave as many of you have mentioned is orange rind with a lot of cinnamon. I just put it into the basket and brew the coffee, not into my cup. These are traditional flavors in the Mexican cafe de olla (my fave). Source: my barista training manuals from the early 2000s.
