If you want it to taste like Starbucks, you need an espresso machine and you need a Starbucks brand coffee. You also need to steam the milk you want to use in your coffee. If I remember correctly,they use a syrup especially for their coffee, not a powder. With all that said, use a gourmet brand coffee (Starbucks or otherwise), brew it 2tbs per 6oz, then steam your milk until hot to touch. If it starts to smell funny, it's too hot and you've scorched it. If you want it to froth, tilt your container to create a vortex and keep the nozzle just at the tip of the milk's surface. Once it looks like all the froth can be made and it's almost too silent, lower the nozzle even more in and wait for the milk to get hot. You may need more milk than you'll use in your coffee. Pour the coffee OVER the ingredients (cocoa powder, sweetener), which should be in the cup already. Powder mixes better after you pour on the hot liquid, not before. For a more round taste, add a vanilla coffee syrup. I do this with nearly every chocolate drink I make. A tad of evaporated milk helps too.
