English term or phrase: Swing Out Filter Holder
This is a feature of a filter coffee maker. The holder swings out making it easier to fill it with coffee. I hope this is clear. Any help would be much appreciated.

German translation:Schwenkfilter
Explanation:
When all else fails, I go to my trusty Otto-Katalog. Their description of an automatic coffe maker includes the term "Schwenkfilter". BTW, if the thing has a drip stop, that's Nachtropfschutz. Hope this helps.

ausschwenkbarer Filter


Explanation:
I would not use "Filterhalter" because in German the "Filter" is the plastic part that receives the "Filtertüte" (the paper filter). You may want to say "ausschwenkbarer Kaffeefilter"
