For me lattes provide 2 purposes. The first is a caffeine boost but the most important is enjoyment and relaxation which is the delightful thing about them.
I was blessed to receive a latte machine for my home and oh how I love love love it. It starts of my weekdays just right and my weekends are made even better! It is also quite nice to be able to offer an espresso, cappucino or latte to my guests. While everyone has their own taste in coffee (have you heard the varations ordered at coffee houses!?!) I hope you find a way to make your own delightful morning beverage...in the comfort of your own home.
