Is mixing sugar in coffee a physical or chemical change?

Mixing sugar in a coffee is a physical change. Mixing sugar in coffee is a physical change because it does not form a new substance, it is still sugar and coffee. If you decided to mix sugar and water to make sugar water, the water could be left to evaporate and the sugar crystals would still be there. So mixing sugar in coffee is also very easy to reverse.

How does the volume change in tea when sugar is added?

In our daily lives, adding sugar to coffee or tea does not change the volume, at least not perceptibly. The sugar molecules can go to fill the space between water molecules and the suspension remains colorless. If I continue adding sugar until I see white substance at the bottom of the glass/cup, there is no more space for sugar molecules to go and the apparent volume of tea/coffee starts expanding -- the volume of the saturated sugary tea has not changed -- it is the water level rising due to the white sugar at the bottom.
