milk and sugar with that?

Years ago I weaned myself from loving cream in coffee down to only liking skim milk.  Now I find even half-in-half makes coffee undrinkable.  Whole milk, on the edge.
  • really great coffee is great black and wrecked by sugar.
  • somewhat bad coffee is drinkable only with sugar
  • really bad coffee is undrinkable
  • some great but strong coffee, such as some espresso, is improved by milk
  • some mediocre coffee is best with both milk and sugar
  • turbinado is the best sugar for coffee
  • sometimes turbinado adds flavor to bland tea, but white sugar is better in mate or mate with tea
