Capacity: 1.2 litres
The spectrum of drip coffee machines of the German company Clatronic could not be complete without its representative in the thriving group of thermal coffee machines: The Clatronic KA-3563.
Let’s take a look back to put ourselves in the situation (and because we can’t assume that you have already read the hundreds of articles on our website): the main quality of the thermal drip coffee machines is that they are coated with stainless steel. You will not see in them the typical glass jug of any filter coffee maker.
Instead, coffee makers like the Clatronic KA3563 include a stainless steel thermal carafe, which keeps the temperature of the coffee for a long time. This is a valuable feature in a filter coffee machine, which we will normally use to prepare a large amount of coffee – for example, this Clatronic KA-3563 has a capacity of more than one litre, or more than ten cups – and therefore risks cooling down and losing properties quickly.
The thermal carafe has a double wall (it is impossible for a single degree Celsius of our freshly brewed coffee to escape) and an ergonomic black plastic handle, which insulates the temperature and allows us to handle the carafe without burning ourselves.
Clatronic KA-3563: Coffee Machine with Thermal Jug
The Clatronic KA 3563 coffee machine has a capacity of 1.2 litres and 800 watts of power. The main structure of the piece is made of black plastic, while the two containers (the thermal carafe and the inner compartment that holds the tank and the filter holder) are made of stainless steel.
In this way, the Clatronic KA-3563 has a robust and solid appearance, as well as being very elegant. The designs with metallic finishes always provide a plus of modernity in our kitchen.
Following the usual line of the Clatronic brand, this Clatronic KA3563 has very simple handling, largely due to the small number of functions and accessories that it has. It is, above all, a functional coffee machine designed for everyday use. In its body, there is only one switch button, in blue, located at the base of the coffee machine (on the right side).

Advantages of the Clatronic KA-3563
- The stainless steel construction and the facility to keep the coffee hot for a very long time.
- It remains an affordable coffee machine, even though the price logically rises compared to other Clatronic drip coffee machines.
- The capacity is acceptable for such a machine, whose basic purpose is to meet a high demand for coffee consumption: the tank holds a maximum of 1.2 litres.
Disadvantages of the Clatronic KA-3563
- One of the disadvantages of coffee makers with thermal carafes (or thermal carafes, rather) is that we cannot see how much coffee is left in them. They have no visible fill level from the outside.
- If you are not going to take advantage of the qualities of the thermal carafe, there are other coffee makers of similar capacity (even within the Clatronic range itself) that can easily cost you half as much.

This type of coffee maker with a thermal jug is perfect for workplaces or homes where coffee consumption is high. They allow you to brew a large cup of coffee (1.2 litres in the case of this Clatronic KA 3563), keep it warm for a long time – we will not discover at this point how unpleasant reheated coffee is – and a host of other advantages.
