I have to admit that the two moka pots that I have had that "burned" 
the coffee were/are aluminum.

 Same here. Just as carefull as can be and there's still a burnt
taste. Maybe jim and I are just more sensitive human beings.;o)
 I'll try at high elevation next time I'm 'you know where'.

Every pot is just a tiny bit different! If nothing else, drink coffee 
made from a pot you love.
I prefer aluminum pots because they remind me of happy times 
and places in my life. Many items in my kitchen resonate this way.

Brian,
    The question is one of moka pots "burning" the coffee.  It has been 
suggested that since aluminum conducts heat better than stainless steel 
and given the construction of the moka pot, aluminum might conduct 
enough heat to result in a "burnt" espresso while stainless steel might 
not.  Since I have been saying that my experience is that moka pots 
"burn" coffee, except at about 7,000 feet, I just noted that indeed the 
two moka pots I have owned were/are aluminum.  All I'm saying is that 
it may well be that my "burned" coffee may well be due to  the aluminum 
moka pots.  I have never had a shot made with a stainless steel moka 
pot.
