Distilling Coffee

I am watching one of my favorite TV shows right now, Alton Brown's Good Eats. Tonight's episode is about making beef jerky. One of the ingredients he adds to his marinade is liquid smoke, which he says he likes to make himself. The process is basically the same as stilling whiskey. He creates a homemade still (did I mention I love this show?) and throws charcoals in the still along with properly moistened wood chips to make the smoke. It got me to thinking...

What if, instead of moistened wood chips, a vaned drum roaster was used to produce coffee roasting smoke to turn into liquid? Coffee aroma essence! This I've gotta try...
