Highly Acidic Coffee

Yesterday we were with family and needed a bit of a respite from, well everything.. and we stopped for coffee at a very nice local restaurant that is known for high quality food and drink. Usually you are given a cup and help yourself to freshly brewed coffee from an air pot. This time we were given a "buzzer" and had to wait for the coffee to be delivered. I noticed on the receipt that it was a pour over style. I don't drink coffee later in the day as I get up quite early but I was eagerly awaiting the cup of pour over as I have been very impressed with this technique (at $3.50 a cup in this case). When the coffee arrived, a bit of half and half was poured in and it promptly curdled. When asked the staff said that it would do that because it was highly acidic. Hmmm. What to do? They suggested trying skim milk. So we got another cup and tried this and it seemed to work better. Anyone ever hear of this?
