As long as the peat is pure peat with no fertilizers or other additives it will be fine. A coffee maker does not distill water. Use bottled distilled water, rain water or RO water which is sometimes available from large vending machines at grocery stores or Sam's Club/Costco/BJ's. Aquarium stores will also usually sell RO water but it's usually more expensive than at the other places.
