Homemade Kahlua

The recent post about limoncello got me thinking about trying homemade Kahlua too. It seems to me that brown sugar rather than white would work with the coffee, and I'd like to use real coffee beans or ground coffee rather than instant. What do you think? There are a zillion recipes out there, but some sound crazy-sweet, or just crazy. I'd prefer a "serious eats" screened version. Thanks for any ideas.
