This might be a good way to burn some vacation days. My cappuccino and latte skills are getting to be reasonable. I have found that the secret to making a latte taste like Starbucks is to use very, very little espresso. I was using a double shot of Lavazza super crema and was surprised at how much I could taste the coffee. I backed it off to a weak single shot and it was very close to what you get from Starbucks with an extra shot in a venti.
