I have never encountered this "burnt" or "scorched" taste when the 
pot was promptly removed from the flame after brewing. Most pots 
will produce a dark colored crema that will last only a few seconds, 
if it's gone, then the scorching can begin.
A more typical scenario would be a person puts a pot on the stove, 
takes an unexpected phone call, and returns two or three minutes 
after they should have - the coffee in the top compartment will be 
boiling! It won't matter what the pot is made of.
Your goal is to catch the coffee at that perfect moment...
Moka pots are pretty cheap. They can often be found for a dollar or 
two at garage sales and are frequently on sale in Latin and Italian 
food and housewares shops. I urge you to try a few! Every design 
has a slightly different flavor profile. This is why the world of coffee 
is as wonderful as it is.
