How can I get a good cup of coffee at Starbucks?

After years of not going anywhere near Starbucks I've become a regular visitor. Not because I love the coffee but because it is the only place in my neighborhood where I can sit and work with a cup of coffee. The problem is that whatever I do, I can't stand the coffee. The regular coffees are hot watery, a regular latte tastes like warm milk, a double latte tastes like nothing on earth, that cappucino is undrinkable, I am totally challenged when it comes to the other complicated orders that people around me seem to delight in ordering ("Cinnamon Dolce Creme Latte," well, I say what?). I made the mistake of switching to the chai tea latte and got a cup full of sugary water. The only thing worth drinking is the chai tea bag tea.

I don't care what I get, I just want it to be drinkable. Any suggestions?
