I want to extract the title of a bibtex entry by using a convenient org-ref function. Is there a way? How?

Im using org-ref with org-mode in spacemacs.

Here's a basic function to look up the entry and title based on the citation at point (bibtex-completion is a dependency of org-ref):

(defun my/print-reference-title ()
  "Print the title to the reference at point in the minibuffer."
   (assoc-default "title"
