Why does cream sometimes curdle when poured into a cup of coffee?

Again, acid is the troublemaker. Chances are the cream was not as fresh as it should have been. As cream ages, its lactic acid content increases. Your coffee, too has acid - and the stronger your brew or the more acidic the beans, the more acid-rich your cup of java. Any acid in sufficient quantity, especially with the help of the coffee's heat, will curdle cream.
