Je voudrais un tasse de café, mais je ne veux pas des sucre. Est-ce correct ?

Also, not to be picky but it’s une tasse de café, i believe. Tasse is feminine. And Stuart is right- all indefinite and partitive articles become de in negative sentences. If you did want sugar, it would be je veux du sucre, not des sucre since it’s singular. Hope I’m right. Still struggling here! Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.

Pas de sucre.  I believe. No article following pas.  Or just ask for un café sans sucre.  (No article with sans either.)
