I don't think the water is coming from the coffee boiler because there are at least three check valves in the path, and there's no autofill function for the coffee boiler -- only the steam boiler
Guide to Condensate Return Pumps & Condensate Systems on Residential Steam Heating Systems Where condensate is unable to flow by gravity back to the steam boiler, a reservoir tank (under our client's hand at left) receives condensate from a low point in the building. A float control and small pump moves condensate back to the steam boiler.
