You could consider using the KiteSDK[1]. It uses Avro schemas to describe
datasets, can infer an avro schema from CSV headers, and includes tools for
importing from CSV to Avro for storage. There's a tool demo that can walk
you through getting things into avro and displaying a plain text version[2].

The current MapReduce support is a first pass, but is enough to start
playing on[3]. Unfortunately, I don't think it has a demo walkthrough yet.
The next release is supposed to be more user friendly.
