I love coffee with cream and sugar, but I also like it black - here is how I do it.
Buy dark brown sugar - very rich tasting and it matches coffee well. You need less, plus it actually has nutrition in it to counteract the sugar. Actually if you bake and use sugar in any of your cooking always use dark brown sugar or add molasses as it contains a good amount of B vitamins and other important nutrients naturally found in sugar cane. I find adding a good amount of wheat germ to any homemade sweets makes them much better - almost like your not eating junk food - almost.
Do not use a paper filter as it adds a bitter note to coffee. Try a french press with a metal filter - it has a slightly richer taste and a bit more sweetness.
Switch to cream instead of milk. A little goes a lot futher than milk.
