Espresso is a brewing method that requires time and experience to make a consistently good drink.

Tamp as evenly as possible, a tilted tamp would result in uneven extraction.   Also make sure you purchase coffee beans that you know when they are roasted.  Purchase from local coffee roasters and make sure they are consumed as quick as possible after the packet is opened.
