The point is simply that "contaminants" are not not all undesirable.  
Again, if you like what you are making, go for it.  I like my coffee the way that I make it: with my local city water filtered through a carbon block whole house filter.

FYI: You can't distill coffee.  If you put coffee, or anything in a 
distiller, the only thing that expands when it turns to steam is water.  
Whatever isn't boiled water remains in the still.  If you put coffee in, 
you get pure water out, coffee stays in still.
